About Emcea...


My name is Emcea and I live in Delft, Netherlands.
One of my hobbies is collecting Saint Nicolas Paper and Saint Nicolas Cards.
I can only do this 2 months a year.
Saint Nicolas is a typical Dutch children's party. The whole country is celebrating the arrival of the Saint. The Saint comes by the steamboat from Spain and departs December 6 back to his house.
It is a celebration that lasts for three weeks. With little various traditions, such as the shoe up to the chimney, special songs and the big party: Pakjesavond on 5 December.
Do you have that kind of party in your country?

Another hobby is "Diamond Painting". :)
It is very relaxing thing to do.
I like to make nice things. Knitting, drawing and so on.

I have read a book, that took my breath away.
It's called: "My life with PTSD" and written by
Sophia Wilhelmina.

Sophia Wilhelmina wrote also:
PTSD an invisible disease...

These books gives a glimp of how live is, when you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

My daughter suffers from PTSD.
This book help me to: understand how it is to have PTSD from the inside!

Now I've found a book that helps children to understand PTSD. :)
It's called: "I'm Leo, a service dog in a cat jacket, and I'm helping my owner with PTSD".
I can read this book to my grandchildren and talk about it. So they can understand the sickness.
